This thread was inspired by the craziest thread just down the page. My grandfather only told a few stories about his service during the korean war. One that has never failed to bring me a smile It was the day they were being live fire trained on the sub machine gun(i believe the carbine but not 100%) since his last name started with B he was first up in his unit. He was given final instruction and told to start a little low as the gun would climb during firing. A target on a wooden stake was indicated and he was given the signal to fire. He shouldered the weapon and promptly shot the post in two.(Unintentionaly). He was severely scolded as the next hundred or so guys had to shoot at the empty space that used to contain a target!
